Surprising Things Your Dog Can Sense

Dogs are the true friends of humans, and there's a strong reason behind it. The way your dog greets you when you come back home from work, the way he becomes your shadow and follows you around the house, the way he automatically comes to you when you are sad shows us that dogs connect with humans on a different level.

Dogs are excellent observers, and they can even pick up emotions from humans or detect things about us which we are not even aware of. These super blessed creatures are unconditionally loving, sensitive, and intuitive.

So, if you are wondering that you will cry and your dog won't know, perhaps you need to think twice. Here are a few things your dog can sense.

Amazing Things Dogs Sense Can About Humans


As we mentioned before, your dog knows when you are sad, happy, calm, or stressed. It always knows what mood you are in today. Do you know how? Well, thanks to their exceptional sniffing abilities.

The dog can sniff the chemical and pheromone changes that occur due to our emotions. Also, they observe our every move as expressions, voice, and body language to gauge our mood.


Are you too occupied with work? Your dog knows!

The dogs know when their human is not paying attention to them. Hence, it is advised to be with them at the moment. Do not check your phone while you take them for a walk or play. Now, we get it that you cannot always give all of your time to them. However, if not, they can take advantage of your lack of attention. Who doesn't love to eat some extra snacks?
